The 86th District Court has announced that they are postponing a host of hearings and trials.
The delays include:
- Any hearing involving someone “vulnerable.”
- Any civil case when anyone asks for it. (Anyone who thinks they’re going to lose should put their requests in now.)
- Jury trials
- Hearings for criminal defendants as long as the defendant is not in custody.
- Show cause hearings for collections matters that were going to occur on March 26.
Do you agree? I believe that courts shouldn’t close unless hospitals and emergency services are also closed. Access to justice is that important.
